the sex is hot here but I just wasn't a fan of Penny. I guess being older than 40 I was finding her behaviour very high school, but it does show that the character is very young and naive. She is only in college and doesn't have much experience with men or even boys which is an accurate portrayal of her character but I would then find it very difficult to believe that James would think she was older. I don't know many guys of his age that would put up with her, a guy who clearly married young and almost divorced at 27 would not be bothering with a serious relationship with a teenager and though she might not look 19 her behaviour actually screamed 16 to me. maybe I'm just too old for this book because I also don't like controlling men. 5 stars for the hit sex though.

Their relationship needs a little TLC, and Emmy is certain this holiday will do the trick. But they've barely unpacked before he scarpers with Gloria, the guesthouse owner's cougar wife. Rupert, the ailing guesthouse owner, is shell-shocked. Feeling somewhat responsible - and rather generous after a bottle (or so) of wine - heartbroken Emmy offers to help.

I've attempted to listen to this twice. the first time I stopped because who catches their boyfriend having sex with someone else and wants to talk about it, doesn't pack up and leave or doesn't think the relationship is over then and there. The second time was not only did she stay but starts cleaning up a place she has been in for 1 night and when the accountant arrives she starts questioning his business. what business is it of hers? she doesn't know these people, it was just bazaar and those things made me dislike the lead character immensely so I have been unable to continue. Disappointing because the synopsis sounded appealing.

I have really come to love Johnathan's writing, he is funny and poetic and hearing him read it only makes it better. Julie as always, love your storytelling, you are the reason most of us jumped into this series with such enthusiasm. Love hearing Ava again as well, sexy voice without being overly mushy, she is one of my favourite narrators these days.

Maddie isn’t looking to be saved. She knows the only person you can count on is yourself. Her moral compass might not point true north these days - but at least she’s still standing. The military taught Tyler about loyalty. Being there for your brothers is the only thing that matters - but when it mattered most, he wasn’t.

Loved it! I wasn't sure what to expect as I had read quite a few of Julie's books before but this was the first time I had read any of Johnathan's work so ... the collaboration works so well, you don't feel like you are reading a section written by one person and then another by someone else, it's seamless. The story - intriguing, the characters - likeable and I need to see where this goes so eagerly anticipating book 2.

I've never been afraid of the dark...but that doesn't mean I wanted to live in it. Maybe everyone wants what they can't have, but I should've thought it over before I unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me very carefully. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it's the other side of him I like best. Number Three is mostly reserved. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That's it. That's all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn't expect to like them.

Oliver Shrike thinks ahead. He likes to make lists and tick off boxes. He plans, he plots, and he's got everything under control. Until one day he sees my videos on his dating site. The private erotic videos I make just for him. When I'm looking at the camera, I can practically see his face. Hear the internal arguments. Feel his desire. Because I'm that kind of woman. You should delete my videos, Oliver Shrike. It's your job to keep that dating site on the up and up. But you don't, do you?
